HISTORY OF KAPPA DELTA RHO PROVISIONAL CHAPTER

What started out as only a thought soon turned into a dream and that dream became a reality.

It was great to say we had

started a new fraternity at Bryant since we belive in the Greek way of life and felt a new organ1zation could help both Greeks and the Bryant Community.

At first several national fraternities

were contacted and then a fr1end sugpested Kappa Delta Rho. we learned what KDR had to offer we decided to set up a chaoter. The reason KDR was chosen was because of its emohasis on cuality and the closeness among its brothers. We awaited a final decision from the Greek Letter Council for about six weeks.

Finally on Aoril 24,

1984 the G.L.C.

accepted KDR as a new fraternity at Bryant College.

For~

the

first time in 17 years there was a new fraternity at Bryant "We all JUSt JUmped uo and hugr;led each f1nally made it.", the G.L.C.

The most

inoortant of these requirements was to inclement a oledge training Program for a length of 3 weeks.

This meant that the

2nd Vice President had to structure a orooram fullfilling the training requirements of the national and chanter within a defined limit of 3 weeks. The first steo of pledgeing was to hold interviews.

The

interviewees were those young men who imoressed the brothers and who showed a desire to pledge Kappa Delta Rho.

The formal

interviewing orocess involved the questioning of each orosoect individually,

using all the brothers input.

Relative questions

were asked by all brothers to the orosoects to inform us of what they had to offer.

After each interview the brothers would vote.

The voting was based on the rules set forth by the national.

The

conclusion of the interviews was to send 16 bids out to 17 prospects interviewed. Because the brothers never went through a 3 weeK orooram. The 2nd Vice President structured the Pledge trainino orooram requiring the brothers to be very involved in every aspect. went over very well. every committee,

This means that much of what was done this year

will be passed down throgh the years as ritual. The main purpose of the 3 week pledoing period was for the oledges to become a unified brotherhood among themselves.

This

was achieved by working like a team to accomplish their obJectives.

The role of this committee has been to increase Bryant's on-campus awareness as well as the community's off-campus awareness of the importance of hav1ng a Greek organization that

is multidimensional.

Not only fo the

brotners of KaPpa Delta Rho strive for scholastic excellence~

but also are concerned with the environment

around us.

We 1llustrate this feeling throuqhout the

community by our involvement in many community activities. Our reward is not a monetary one,

but a feeling of

satisfaction and oride within ourselves;

it is also knowing

that we have upheld the Kappa Delta Rho tradition and spirit through building a rapport with the outside community.

The first endeavor that this committee became involved was to rasie money for a benefit concert.

The

concert was designed to ass1st a five year-old boy,

named

Jeremiah Potter,

who desperately needed a liver transplant.

Six local bands were featured at the concert which took place September 23,

1984.

We thought that this was a very

worthy cause and decuded that we wanted to participate in this charitable event.

Since we were informed about this

event only 12 days prior to the concert date,

an intensified

effort was needed to make our efforts benef1cial. thing tnat had to be done was to could.

with an additional $50 donation from money ra1sed at a social gatherinp.

The concert was very successful and the

Potters were very thankful for all that we did in connection with the concert.

We were later informed that Jeremiah

Potter received a liver transolant and was recovering nicely.

This was the kind of ending that all the brothers

had hoped for from the start= a successful liver transolant for Jeremiah Potter.

Our next activity involved the on-campus Big Brother prooram.

The on-campus Big Brother program has been

declining at an increased rate,

so we decided that this

would be a tremendous opoortunity to help a very good cause. We did not want this program to terminate because the orooram was very important to many young children. Participation by many brothers,

We are very enthusiastic about this upcoming

event; hoping that

it will be as successful as previous

events sponsored by Kappa Delta Rho.

In conclusion,

the social services committee

will be one that will always try to help as many individuals in need as possible.

We feel that this committee is an

we will do by uoholdinq the honor and tradition of Kacoa Delta Rho.

The social committee of Kappa Delta Rho has the responsibility of organizing all social events and also to involve as many brothers in the orocess as possible.

We

devised a schedule so that each brother contributed equal time and effort to all functions.

It was our duty to assign

certain people for each function.

These brothers were

responsible for obtaining all alcohol and other necessary mater1als.

They were also responsible for refilling all

punch containers and making sure that everything ran accordingly.

One of our most outstanding events to date was our Christmas Party.

We obtained one of the school halls

and were able to decorate the entire room.

W1th the helo of

an outside disc Jockey and plenty of food and drink,

the

oarty was an incredible success. /

Another branch of our responsibilities was the organization of closed Brother's Parties.

These functions

were held at times when we felt that we were becom1nq distant from each other.

This was due primarily to

, excessive amounts of schoolwork. papers becoming due,

With all the tests and

The first or second week of October is designated PARENTS WEEKEND at Bryant College.

Dur1ng this

weekend the brothers of Kappa Delta Rho hold a social hour on Saturday afternoon for the parents of brothers and the parents of rushes.

This year I organized the social hour

because of my experience in catering and in food service in general.

Approximatley four weeks prior to the weekend I spoke with my former employer and ordered a variety of hors'dovers for the occasion.

I then asked one of my

brothers to make arrangements for beverages.

I gave him an

idea of what we wanted to serve and what we could spend. The day of the party I picked the food up at the caterers and set it up in our dorm.

All the brothers dressed in suits on the day of the event.

The parents were greatly impressed with the fine

JOb that we had done.

The parents of our rushes were

especially impressed with the caliber of men at Kappa Delta Rho.

I believe this was the best aspect of the social hour,

something we really were not olanning on.

During the first semester,

all of tne brothers

worked together at two carnivals making and selling fried dough.

We rented a fryalator and fried the dough in front

of the people.

They had the choice of powdered sugar or

tomato sauce and cheese as toppings.
